With NXP microcontrollers equipped with the Device HSM trust provisioning
feature, OEMs’ assets and their software IP can be transferred securely to
production factories. Secure programming and provisioning can be achieved even
under an unsecure manufacturing environment. A hardware security module (HSM) is
typically a device used for securely managing, processing and storing
cryptographic keys inside a hardened, tamper-proof hardware. NXP implements
this concept at device level so that the HSM capabilities are found in our
microcontrollers with the purpose of managing secrets for OEMs. We call this trust provisioning solution "Device HSM".
A microcontroller evaluation board and
MCUXpresso Secure Provisioning (SEC) tool
are the only required tools to implement Device HSM trust provisioning to
protect your software IP and other assets. Contact your local
NXP sales representative to learn more.
